Are your kids back in school? I still have a few more precious days with Landon before he starts first grade on Wednesday.
It has been a great summer. L went to the town summer camp, then to the YMCA camp for two weeks, and to farm camp for one. He learned to swim and liked it so much that I drove him to swim lessons for six weeks.
I went to BlogHer’12 and needed L to be in camp so I could get my work done during the summer, but boy, am I enjoying the last few days before school with him.
We went to NYC for a fun-filled day recently which we topped off with a mommy-and-son dinner at the Katonah Diner. We cracked each other up so much :)
I meant to just stock up on frozen organic orange juice at Trader Joe’s, but of course bought more. L was so eager to help pack everything, as always. He’s a great little shopping buddy and indulges my browsing with a surprising patience.
He has no fear and did super. I think these lessons are a great tool to teach him about concentration because it demands of him to keep track of a lot of new terms while using his body in a new way. Plus it teached him to take care of a big animal, which builds such confidence.
After having a slice of pizza, Mama felt generous and we had a big cookie at the new Tazza coffeehouse in Katonah. They have WiFi, so I know where I’ll be sitting and working once L goes back to school.
It doesn’t hurt him, but we need to get it fixed soon. We’ve had so many issues with his front teeth over the years that I don’t remember if this is the one we just fixed a few months ago. Actually, I think that was done during this visit.
Then we skipped down the street because I wanted to check out what’s new at Ebba. This beautiful little boutique always has the most unique home decor items, plus handbags, scarves, tunics, jewelry, and Viktoria’s handmade fragrances and candles.
Remember the pretty bracelet I found there that I wore at BlogHer’12? If you live near Katonah and are in need of a special gift, definitely make a point to visit Ebba.
Tomorrow we are going to touch sharks. Let’s see if that’s different from touching dolphins.
